Silke Geister and Martin Jeninchen left the agency in 1993 and 2000 respectively. Peter Hirth joined in 1994. In 2001, the two existing partners decided on building an archive of professional images for the joint marketing of their pictures and to accept additional photographers into the archive. Sylvia Pollex was managing partner from 2001 – 2008. From 2010 until 2012 the managing partner Thomas Härtrich and Christiane Eisler were leading the agency.
